: MediaTakeOut.com got its hands on pics from T.D. Jakes' daughters wedding this past weekend. It looked like a wonderful event.
Here are a few words from the father of the bride, Bishop T.D. Jakes:
A Perfect Day
Okay, okay, I will admit it-there might have been a moment or two that my windshields got a little foggy at my daughter's wedding. It might have been the humidifier in the room but no, in reality I think those were really tears!
It was unbelievable to me to see how she had turned into such a beautiful woman. The music was flawless but that is what one gets when you have Kelly Price, Anasia, and Micah Stampley. The mood was regal as Bishop Noel Jones brought an elegance and ambiance that is consistent with his erudite persona.
But for my wife and I, it was all about the look in the bride and groom's eye. I will never forget the feeling of escorting her down the aisle, trying with some futility to get her to slow down her pace. I wanted her to walk slowly-in part because I am still healing and needed a slower pace-but mostly because I wanted her to savor the moment.
I whispered in her ear to slow down a little, as she seemed like she was ready to run a track sprint to get to the altar. As we got closer to the front I could see why-the groom had tears running down his face and I swear it seemed like she was all he could see in the room.
Yeaaaaa Where in the hell do you see the ELEGANCE?? enough that it needs to be mentioned and in CAPS??? I was expecting to see something truly special AND elegant..its aiight like any other normal wedding
I personally know that Bishop Jakes did not write this. This is an email that's been going around for a minute. Be careful Mediatakeout. Here's a clue: Bishop Jakes wouldn't be saying, "I swear....".
She was a beautiful bride though.
flyshortypyt@ You took the words right out my mouth! MTO you are full of chit, you go on other blogs & post their stories on yours the next day & claim it's exclusive. What happened to Kimora & Beyonce being pregnant & Mary J.! Get your stories right!
OKAY IMMA GET A FEW THINGS OUTTA THE WAY B4 I START MY STUFF.
AWWWWWWWW HIS DTR IS PRETTY, SON-IN-LAW IS VERY HANDSOME (LUCKY HEFFA).
THAT PIC OF THE SON-IN-LAW CRYIN REMINDS ME OF MORRIS CHESTNUT IN THE "BEST MAN" WHEN HE WAS IN THE PULPIT ABOUT 2 B MARRIED LOL.
AND YES MTO THAT IS A TATTOO
HMMMMMMM I AM A CHRISTIAN BUT....LORD 4GIVE ME 4 THIS 1........BUT I HAVE 2 SPEAK ABOUT IT.......
IS THIS WHERE MY GRANDMA'S MONEY WENT? ON HIS DTR'S WEDDING? AND I WASN'T INVITED? WTF I REALLY WANNA KNW WAT OTHER HUSTLE..........I MEAN JOB.......UMMM WAT DO HE DO BESIDES PREACH THE WORD? Y THIS PASTOR IS SO DAMN FLY? Y HE DRIVIN AROUND IN EXPENSIVE CARS LIKE A HOLLYWOOD SUPERSTAR WHILE THE PEOPLE WHO ATTEND HIS CHURCH, GIVIN AWAY THEIR HARD-EARNED MONEY EVRY WEEK IS STRUGGLIN? THESE R QUESTIONS R OFTEN WONDER ABOUT. I KNW IT AIN'T NUTTIN BUT THE DEVIL SEEPIN THESE CORRUPTED THOUGHTS IN2 MY HEAD BUT THANX 2 THE DEVIL I'M NOT GULLIBLE NOR AM I BLINDED BY WATS APPARENT AROUND ME........AND I HAVE A SOUND MIND 2 THINK ABOUT ALL THIS & QUESTION THOSE IN THE CHURCH. I WANNA REALLY KNW WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO THAT "WE" GIVE 2 OUR CHURCHES......
When I was in 4th or 5th grade (some 20+ years ago), I recall my teacher explaining that "back in the day" men wore earrings when there were no women around, so other men would know that they are available. This happened on long sea trips (navy, etc...), jail, and other types of situations in which men were along.
I know that it's been a long time since then and we've come a long way but it's difficult for me to get that thought out of my head. I have never worn an earring and I find it hard to sit under pastor's that wear them. I never knew that Jakes rocked an earring 'til these pictures.
He can do what he wants but it's just something I'm personally uncomfortable with.
i recieved these pictures via email, then i recieved another email w/ a link to a slideshow of the whole wedding and reception. it was like 300 pics and they were really nice. the reception at bishop's house was really elegant. i tried to go back and show my sisters the pictures, but i couldn't access them again. oh yeah, i also think it's sexy when the groom shows his emotions and starts crying. that pic of the groom got to me :-)
I'm sorry, but something seems hypocritical about overweight "people of god". Makes me think of Gluttony, Greed and Sloath- 3 of the 7 deadly sins. Hypocrites- and those are the obvious offenses- I'm sure more evil lies beyond the public eye.
I did't see ANYTHING breathtaking. The Takes family all need to go on matching diets, judging the parents her future weight-wise looks bleak.
Whats the big deal on the tattoo...?? The tat could have been from back when she was unsaved and it's permanent. I'm a Christian and I have three. I've made silly mistakes too. However, MTO, if you wanna ask about something, ask me why your father who is also your Pastor TD Jakes...wearing ear rings..... not judging, just saying, if you're gonna mention her tat, why does he get a pass???
Big ups to T.D. Jakes....Amazing how he went from a small church in West Virginia to becoming the mega-preacher he has become....
Looks like a great wedding...Best wishes to them...
And MTO you all are ignorant for the tattoo comment...well, actually its reflective of a lot of fake holier-than-thou so-called "christians" who are so caught up in superficial nonsense that they over look what is most important...What is in someone's heart....
When I pay my tithes in church, I do not question whether the funds are allocated ethically or not. When the lights are on, the air is running, the proprty taxes are paid, the mortgage, the church transportation, programs, the minister's salary, and the rest of the utilities, etc. I realize that this money must come from somewhere. I also know that God will take care of the issue of thievery and deception. It amazes me how we will pay top dollar for material things, clubbing, clothes cars, rims, concert tickets and other things that we feel we deserve, but we question the tithe. Should Bishop T.D. Jakes be poor. Then we would wonder why he is presenting himself as a role model. Something to think about...........
Good looking couple. I wish them the best and their colors were bomb.
@sexy cece; I don't know whats going on in your life but you always seem to be a tad bit bitter. No one should be that negative all the time. Pray baby it helps and heals.
She looks beautiful on her wedding day, not to be a sour puss....but...How much of your church tides paid for that wedding???"
"Come on people I know you can dig a little deeper in those pockets....let see what you have to offer your church!!!
I didn't take the time to read all of ths posts, but for the folks who is concerned about if the money spent on this wedding came from the church ets. Remember that T. D. Jakes have written best selling books and I'm sure that he has made big bucks off of them.
suzieque43 all of the "megachurches" in my county have atms in their lobby, i guess its the norm. And if jakes' church is like the ones here, they probably ask their parishioners to show them their w-2 forms so they can tell them how much they need to pay in tithes each month.
now the whole situation about the atm's being in the church and them wanting to see your w2's is ridiculous....you are not going to tell me how much i am going to tithe, i will do it from my heart...i don't believe in the church...i love god and i trust that he looks over me and my kids, but me and the church is a touchy subject
....And THIS is how our "BLACK-ATHELETES" should look with their Brides !!!
Not that he's one .
Take notes Dum-ase-F _ _ K E _ S !, tHOSE WHITEES ARE WITH YOU FOR YOUR DOLLARS !
"WHITE LOOKS" FADE QUICK, asses !!!
Why do some hateful people always have to piss on something? Can't you just say something simple like it's beautiful or sweet without talking about somebody's body part or trashing the story? Clean out your hearts. Even MTO. Was the tattoo comment necessary? No Christian is perfect, so they may have done some questionable things. We are all human.
about the ear ring, the bible doesnt say that an ear ring is a sin, im a Christian man and i wear one, that makes me no less holy because i have one, just my own prefernce. To all yall with the statements that start with "I heard...", why not go to some of these churches before you try to judge from far away and based on some people's silly opinions. TD Jakes is fire! Some of dude's sermon's have helped me in my really down moments in my life, he help point me back to God when I felt like giving up on life. That guy deserves all the blessings he has, he has helps so many ppl! DALLAS TEXAS REPRESENT!!!!
He's a fucking pimp and a crook. He, Creflo Dollar, Eddie Long, Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn. All a bunch of pimps, using poor people's money, promising them salvation, and giving each other $500,000 watches, and cash gifts. It's just shameful. All you christians, lookup "moneychangers," and you'll see the pictures of these clowns.
You Know what...
Its funny how you so called "Christians" are the main ones talking bout how Bishop is probably using the church's money for this wedding, yet does anybody recognize how much he does? He writes books, produces gospel cds, produced movies, provided housing for the elderly, and built a private school for kids to recieve a better education close to their religion, yet you people are sitting up here on a GOSSIP site talking bashing him like that? This hurts my heart to know that people he considers a second family are over here basically calling him a fraud, a stealer, and a liar...
Seriously, what are we coming to?
I'D KINDLY APPRECIATE IT IF YOU BACK OFF OF MY PASTOR CREFLO A DOLLAR.
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT ANYWAY.
JUST LIKE T D JAKES, PASTOR DOLLAR HAVE PUBLISHED SUCCESSFUL BOOKS AND CD'S AMONG OTHER THINGS THESE MEN OF GOD HAVE BEEN BLESSED TO BE SUCCESSFUL WITH.
SO DON'T GO ASSUMING THAT THE CHURCH MONEY IS BEING USED TO PAY FOR A WEDDING.
I'M SURE WHEN PASTOR DOLLAR DAUGHTERS GET MARRIED HE'LL MAKE SURE THAT IT'S A WONDERFUL EVENT JUST LIKE T D JAKES DID FOR HIS DAUGHTER.
LET'S NOT GET IT TWISTED, GOD HAS BLESS SOME MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD WITH MONEY.
IT'S A FACT.
IN RESPONSE TO Treasure8430
IT'S FUNNY HOW PEOPLE ARE SO QUICK TO ATTACK THE CHURCH AND THEIR PASTORS. EVERY SUNDAY A PREACHER IS DELIVERING YOU A MESSAGE SO YOU CAN GET TO HEAVEN. NO ONE EVER QUESTIONS WHY DOCTORS AND LAWYERS MAKE SO MUCH MONEY BUT AS SOON AS A PREACHER HAS NICE THINGS THEY ARE QUICK TO BASH THEM AND THEIR CHURCH. YOU KNOW THE TREE BY ITS FRUIT. IF THE PREACHER IS BLESSED THEN THE PEOPLE WILL FOLLOW. I DON'T WANT TO HOP ON A BUS AND SEE MY PASTOR AND SUNDAY HE'S PREACHING ABOUT PROSPERITY BUT HE LIVES IN A SHACK. BESIDES WHEN YOU ARE GIVING YOUR MONEY YOU SHOULDN'T QUESTION WHERE YOUR MONEY IS GOING. YOU ARE GIVING TO THE CHURCH. WHETHER OR NOT THERE IS A CROOKED PREACHER, GOD WILL STILL BLESS YOU AND DEAL WITH THEM.
Pimpin preacher at his best. Sorry, but besides all the excessive amount of money spent the wedding was a little tacky. The blue really didn't match that brown. They could have done better coordination with the flowers.
it's a lovely wedding! I love the colours, simplicity and elegance. i don't know why people imagine that the 'church mouse' should always be poor!! it's painful to see one man who professes to preach God's Word having money to meet his needs and those of his family and friends but people who are involved in violence and other shameful behaviours have so much money and no one come to MTO to talk them down. do you think that if TD Jakes were a businessman and not a minister he wouldn't be rich? I don't think so! Just because he has submitted his will to obey God and be a Preacher every other thing he does is blessed and multiplied by God! That is why he has ideas to write and publish that change lives ever so often. if you think it's so easy to get money out of people, start your own church, let's see how many people will be able to give you their tithe, tides, money, dollars or whatever you call it.you must understand that ministry is hard work! don't feel so bad, angry or jealous! when you wed, MTO'll be there, we'll all be waiting up here to comment. Your Daddy'll walk you to the altar, dance with you, pray over you and all that... You see that's what I mean...many of us don't have fathers that will do that for us, no matter how simple and small the congregation. the best we can do now is to live a good life so that we can give our best to our kids when it is our turn to do them proud. cheers! REJOICE!
This is for Treasure and anyone else who has negative comments to make about Bishop Jakes and any other man of God. I know it is easier to try and discredit people that we don't know, don't understand or are envious of. However, to do this and put Jesus Christ name to it is beyond disgraceful!!!!! The means by which his daughters wedding was financed is yours or anyone else's business how exactly????? ..... To say that "all he does is preach the Word" shows your lack of intelligence, so therefore you should not speak on things you have no knowledge of, because if you had knowledge of the "Word of God" you would know that he is not living lavishly he is living "BIBLICALLY"... The Word teaches us that Christ came to give us life and life more ABUNDANTLY.. so when a person is being obiedient to God and is living the blessing of God's promise dont "HATE" "PARTICIPATE"!!!!!!!!! So while you claim to be a christian and at the same time thanking the devil for you not being gulable truly baffles me.... because you are gulable enough to believe that its ok to thank satan!!!!!!!...WOW... I would suggest get into the Word the of God... THE BIBLE.... and find the answer to all your questions, I assure you they are in there....You will understand why he is living the way he is and how it came to be.... Phil 4:19 says " I will supply all your needs".. it doesnt say that I will allow you to build a building, have people come and they will supply your needs by giving you their money...... People who "TITHE"... (that means as you put it "give their hard earned money")... are tithing because the word of God tells us to, not because the Pastor said so... I suggest you read the book Malachi..... and as you are reading ( if you decide to ) The Word also states, "touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm"... I would be REAL careful when being so judgemental....
GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU!!!!
